The Cricketers hit a sticky wicket, and the Boxers punched a hole in one of the Golfers, who complained the Athletics Guild just ran around in circles.
The Dentists drilled into them. ‘All you say is Ah!’ shouted the Opticians and brought them back to focus. ‘We need looking after.’ shouted the Royal College of Nurses, but the Midwives suggestion was stillborn. So the Domestic’s Union tried a joke about bankers cleaning up, but it just left a vacuum.
